Another recipe posted for ZWT Australia from "The Barbecue! Bible" by Steven Raichlen and here is the description: "Shrimp "on the barbie," aka grill, is Australia's most famous culinary export. Even if you know nothing else about Down Under cooking, you're surely aware of how much Australians love grilling-especially seafood. If the truth be told, shrimp is something of a misnomer, as most Australians would say "prawns." The Chinese roots of this dish are obvious-a legacy of the huge influx of Asian immigrants to Australia in the 1970s and 80s. I love the way the sweetness of the honey and five-spice powder play off the nuttiness of the sesame seeds and sesame oil and the brininess of the shrimp and soy sauce."
